Yellow Shipping Mailers

Finally! Our yellow shipping mailers have arrived! This is our latest certified Home-Compostable HEROPACK. 

PLEASE NOTE: Total shelf life of our mailers is 9-12 months. These mailers have a remaining shelf life of 1-2 months. These mailers are 30% off - the discount will be applied at checkout. These mailers cannot be returned or exchanged.

It looks and feels like plastic, but it's not. Not even close. It is a 100% home-compostable shipping mailer and is made from 70-80% PBAT (a co-polymer that is completely compostable) and 20-30% PLA (which is a fancy way of saying cornstarch).

In a commercial compostable environment, it will break-down within 90 days. At home, it may take up to 120 days.

Please note: These mailers are translucent. We highly recommend packaging your products in a bag or wrapping that is opaque so the products can't be seen through the packaging. 

The translucency of the HEROPACK material is due to the nature of the renewable ingredients used. There are strict rules to be in compliance with the Australian home-compostable certification from ABA, and this is the most important factor for us. If you are looking for no transparency, we recommend our black compostable mailers.

Another important thing to remember: Over time, because of the soy based ink, the colour of these mailers can run and transfer so please make sure to always use something to cover your products (like our INNERHERO bags) before putting it in the HEROPACK. 

Design features:

  • Small HEROPACK logo in black on the front
  • Double adhesive strip so your customers can re-use the bag
  • Premium matte finish to differentiate our compostable mailers from glossy plastic mailers.
  • You can apply your existing shipping labels or write directly onto the mailer.
  • Waterproof to keep shipments safe from rain.
  • Medium Transparency*
  • Dimensions of the mailer now mentioned on the back for ease of re-ordering.
  • Are you looking for customised mailers with your own brand logo? Check out our Custom Mailer page.
  • Our compostable mailers are tough and durable.

  • Australia: Home Compostable (AS5810) and Commercially Compostable (AS4736)
  • International: Home Compostable (EN13432) and Commercially Compostable (EN13432)

Please note: If you're shipping any products which have sharp corners or edges (such as shoe boxes), it's best to trial a couple of shipments with our mailers to ensure everything performs as expected. In order to remain certified home-compostable, our mailers can't be too thick like evil plastic mailers, so sharp corners could sometimes cause damage. Other than that, HEROPACK mailers have a high weight load rating and can withstand all the hard knocks during the shipping process.

Product shelf life: as our compostable mailers are made using renewable ingredients, they have a shelf life of approximately 9-12 months when kept in cool and dry conditions, out of direct sunlight. This should be considered when ordering mailers in bulk. We recommend ordering for a 3-6 month period of shipments.

Hero Packaging's HEROPACK yellow shipping bags are both high-quality and eco-friendly. They're 100% compostable and made of 70-80% PBAT (compostable co-polymer) and 20-30% PLA (cornstarch). These materials are what make the mailers so durable, while also ensuring that they'll break down within 90-120 days.

Why Choose Hero Packaging Mailers?

Hero Packaging Mailers help you to make a good impression with your customers. Unlike cheap, glossy, plastic mailers, Hero Packaging mailers have a premium matte finish. Their overall design is attractive yet subtle, with only a small, grey HEROPACK logo printed against the solid yellow backdrop.

Worried you'll be shipping your products during harsh Australian weather? Hero Packaging Mailers are totally waterproof, keeping your shipments safe from the rain. You can also apply your own shipping labels or write on them directly to ensure they get where you need them to go!

Choose the Perfect Size for Your Product

Our yellow shipping mailers come in 5 sizes, all of which are similar to the sizes used by Australia Post. This includes the small (19cmx26cm), the small-medium (22cmx34cm), and the large 3kg (36cmx48cm). We currently offer packs in quantities of 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, and 1000. To order in larger quantities and gain more customisation options, we recommend using our custom compostable mailers form.

Unsure which size or colour to choose? If you'd like to try out our different mailers before purchasing one of our larger packs, you're welcome to order our HEROPACK sampler. The sampler contains 1 mailer of each colour and size, giving you the variety you need to determine which mailer suits your product best.

There may be delivery delays for non-Australian orders. Please allow more time for your order to arrive and check your tracking link for the latest information before contacting us.

If you wish to place a pre-order as well as purchase available items, it's best to purchase separately to avoid delays in shipping your order.

      You will receive a shipping tracking notification as soon as your order has been dispatched. If you have any questions, please message us for assistance.

      What exactly are they made from?

      HEROPACKS are made from home-compostable materials, mainly corn starch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together). 

      How do we compost them?

      To compost them at home, it’s best to remove any labels, cut them up and place in your compost bin as “brown” materials. These will completely break down within 90-120 days in a home-compostable environment - sometimes even sooner!

      These can also be sent to composting facilities to be properly broken down and composted. If you are in Australia, please CLICK HERE to find a composter near you. You can also ask your local council if they can provide a composting green bin for you. Another great option is to visit to find a local home-composting enthusiast near you!

      What happens if they end up in landfill?

      Our goal is to ensure all our products are disposed of correctly. This means encouraging our business customers and consumers to not send any packaging to landfill. It's most important to help your customers home-compost our products to take full advantage of the environmental benefits. In a home-compost, HEROPACK mailers take 90 days to break down. As most landfills are deprived of oxygen, all materials ending up in landfill do not degrade as intended, including our compostable products. Due to the nature of the landfill process, this will add to methane production. If a landfill is exposed to oxygen, then our home-compostable materials with degrade much faster than other materials. In contrast, traditional plastic shipping mailers (including recycled plastic mailers) take 400 years or more to break down, and still release deadly methane gas into the atmosphere. The bottom line is that encouraging businesses and households to compost is on of the best solutions against fighting climate change.

      How do your mailers compare to Australia Post (Auspost) mailer sizes?

      Australia Post has the following sized mailers:

      500g - 220x355mm
      1kg - 265x385mm
      3kg - 310x405mm
      5kg - 435x510mm

      The closest mailers we have are as follows:

      500g - Use our Small-Medium mailer (220x340mm)
      1kg - Use our Medium mailer (265x380mm)
      3kg - Use our Medium (265x380mm) or Large (360x480mm)
      5kg - Use our X Large (550x550mm)

      How does shipping work for HEROPACKs (compared to Australia Post pre-paid mailers)?

      When you purchase HEROPACKs, you are purchasing the mailers only (not the shipping). To pay for shipping, you will need to go to an Australia Post shop and get labels printed or if you use e-Parcel or Sendle, you can print and pay for labels at home. If you need any more information, head to our blog post - Check it out here!

      What happens in water?

      They are water resistant but if they are placed in water for a long time, they will break down there too. It takes much longer to break down in water because of the cooler temperatures.

      How can I tell my customers about the compostable packaging?

      If you place an order with us, you will receive a link to our Retailer Media Pack, including images and information sheets to send to your customers and/or display on your website.

      Are the white strips covering the adhesive also compostable?

      The white strips are not compostable at this stage, and are considered a soft plastic. This is because if a compostable material was used to cover the adhesive, it would not peel off effectively and would mean the mailer is unusable and not sealable. The best method of disposal for these white strips is using a commercial soft plastics recycling company by searching here, or using a Community Recycling Centre in NSW, Australia, which accept all recycling for free (search for similar organisations in other states). It's important to note that once mailers have been reused and are ready for final disposal, the white strips covering the adhesive have already been removed, leaving the compostable mailer ready for your customers to home or commercially compost.

      Is the backing paper for your HEROLABELs compostable or recyclable?

      The label backing material is not compostable at this stage, but is recyclable through a specialised process which separates the paper from a thin silicone material (the shiny part which allows the label to peel off the backing paper easily). The best method of disposal for the backing paper is through TerraCycle and their Office Supplies Zero Waste Box. We're working on a return to store type program to also assist in the recycling of our label backing material (more on this coming soon).

      What's the difference between compostable and biodegradable?

      In short, a biodegradable product simply breaks down into smaller micro-plastics which still contaminate the environment. Certified home-compostable products break down as if they were never there, and can also be safely eaten by worms. Therefore, a compostable product is always more preferable over a biodegradable product. 

      Do your compostable mailers have a shelf life?

      Yes. As our compostable mailers are made from renewable ingredients, they have a shelf life of approximately 9-12 months when kept in cool and dry conditions, out of direct sunlight. This should be considered when ordering mailers in bulk. We recommend ordering for a 3-6 month period of shipments when purchasing mailers. We are also working on many mailer design improvements which will see this life expectancy increase in the future.

      Where are your products made?

      All of our HEROPACKs and HEROBUBBLEs are produced in China. There are good reasons for this and we would love to tell you! Head over to our Where Are They Made page for all the information.

      Our accessories are made in USA, Germany and Australia.

        Chris M. (Brisbane, Queensland, Australia)
        Packing is great, to easy to reopen though

        The packing is nice. It is far to easy to reopen once sealed. I guess this is good because if you forget something it's easy to throw in.

        Véronique D. (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)
        Great product

        Wonderful packages and so nice to be able to choose the colour. Great service too

        Dii D. (Brisbane, Queensland, Australia)
